Keith Urban’s new album Defying Gravity will be released March 31 on Capitol Records Nashville. The project’s lead single “Sweet Thing” has already reached No. 3 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart and is still climbing.
“Defying Gravity comes from the lyrics of a song on the album and it just struck me at the time as a phrase that really defined the joyous, optimistic and uplifting spirit that seemed to show itself while making the album,” Urban explains.
In May he’ll launch the Escape Together World Tour, which will visit 58 cities across North America. Urban will team with a different touring partner in each city, with guests including Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Dierks Bentley, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, and The Zac Brown Band.
